That does not look like a final drive failure, but for some reason a failure of the swing arm casting. Of course if the final drive locked up there would be a huge twisting pressure applied to the swing arm.
Will be very interested to see if the final drive is indeed locked up, or if something else caused the casting to fail. That is a first that I remember. If it did lock up, the reason why would be the next question.
